As a deliberate battle against the overwhelm of undone tasks one experiences with two young children and a wife on bedrest, I decided we should watch movies while the girls nap on Saturdays.

But, as we were perusing the list of free Amazon Prime movies this past weekend, I stumbled upon this movie – and I can’t stop recommending it to people!
(Disclosure: Jill and I have not actually watched this film together, but plan to. We ended up watching multiple episodes of the Big Bang Theory instead – who knew that TV show plays almost continuously on weekends? I had to get up at 5am and watch “Happy” from the bike trainer!)
